Growing Tasmanian Agriculture - Research, Development and Extension for 2050

​In Febuary 2017 the Tasmanian Government announced that it is developing a white paper, "Growing Tasmanian Agriculture – Research, Development and Extension for 2050".

T​he purpose of the white paper is to guide future Government investment, industry partnerships and set a contemporary framework for achieving the productivity improvements required to growth the value of agriculture tenfold to $10 billion by 2050.

The first step in the process is the release of a Green Paper during April 2017 on this web page for public comment.  

The Green Paper is a discussion paper where questions are asked and farmers, researchers, agribusiness, industry associations and others who are interested can make comment on and provide views to Government on key questions raised in the paper.

To register your interest in keeping information about the White Paper process please email RDE@dpipwe.tas.gov.au   or contact Heather Neate on (03) 6478 4106​
